Sweden never wanted NATO membership, but 'now we have US-led military drills on our land’ | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Sweden never wanted NATO membership, but 'now we have US-led military drills on our land’

Despite Swedish people not wanting an agreement with NATO, it was pushed through parliament; working closely with the US will mean nuclear weapons in the country which Swedes are definitely against, says Marilyn Barden, a member of the 'No to NATO' group.

While the US is building up its presence in Poland with more than a thousand military vehicles, including nearly 200 tanks and an entire infantry division as part of the existing NATO force in Eastern Europe, American troops are now involved in Sweden's biggest military exercises in more than 20 years.

Sweden is a signatory of the so-called host nation agreement that enables foreign units, specifically NATO, to operate within Swedish borders for exercises, crises or military operations.
